Elijah Draws

Elijah (age 14 months) draws for the first time with no help! His first picture. Proud dad here....

Ah, darn!

I wish you hadn't mentioned that it was a kiddie drawing! Before I reead the text, I was admiring it, and finding all sorts of amazing stuff in it.

Like the ominous dragon shape that sorta leaps out of it when you stand back. (Or it could be a cat hissing.)

Like the word 'love' top left, that sorta transmutes into a typographical scream for help.

Like the weird way the pic feels like it's pulling you in.

And then I read that it's a little 'un that did it, and... and...

And, well... those things I saw in it are still there. Heheheheeh!

Thanks so much for posting it. It's a lovely, vivid pic.

PS: Here's my stab at 'Help'.

:) Elijah did a great job with his first illo! I see the word LOVE too, and a blue tulip! Wonderful work!
